Roast dinners are serious business in Yorkshire. They gave us Yorkshire puddings, after all. This time, they’ve done something really special – Leeds-based brewery, Northern Monk have teamed up with Aunt Bessie’s to create a two course roast dinner in beer form. You read that right – BEER FORM.
They’ve taken all of the traditional elements of a roast dinner and turned it into beer. Two beers, actually, a Roast Dinner Brown Ale and a Jam & Custard Pale Ale (dessert, obv).
Sunday Dinner is a 5.7% Roast Dinner Brown Ale brewed with Aunt Bessie’s Crisp & Fluffy Roasties and Original Golden Yorkshires. Yep, they’ve used yorkshire puddings and roast potatoes while brewing this beer!
Jam Roly Poly – the dessert, if you will – is a 5% Jam & Custard Pale Ale inspired by the Aunt Bessie’s product of the same name. It’s brewed with plum, apricot and strawberry – the same fruits used in the Aunt Bessie’s product, along with custard to round out the flavours.
“It’s been an honour working with Aunt Bessie’s, a truly iconic Northern brand.
There’s nothing quite like a Sunday Roast with all the trimmings, and on a weekend where we’d usually be getting together with our families for a traditional Sunday Dinner, we’ve teamed up to bring you something a little different.”
– Russell Bisset (Founder, Northern Monk)
